just wondering whether there are any others on the Inca Trail - or if any one has any tips/hints about the trip.
hey Susan, I'm about to start training and my first job will be breaking in a new pair of boots! have you done anything like this before? This will be my first 'adventure'!!
Hi Susan, the Inca trail has been a dream since 1999, finally it's almost time! I'm am assuming I'm on the group flight out of Heathrow, are you flyimg from London too? Amanda :)
Yes, perhaps we can meet up in the departure lounge. I'm trying to exercise in some form most days, and doing one longish hike each week, about 12 miles with as many hills as possible, but it's not exactly mountainous in the East Midlands! How are your new boots? Susan :)
Hi Susan, I think the coca leaves are supposed to have properties in them help with acclimitisation and other ailments. Apparently they're used in teas/drinks and can be chewed. It's legal in Peru but we can't bring any home as it contains cocaine?!!! I'm a bit confused re the exodus kit bag - are you planning to take a separate piece of luggage (in addition to the kit bag) and then decant some stuff for the trek itself (+ day sack?) I thought that we could use the kit bag as the sole piece of large luggage (to be left at hotel in Cuzco) and then pack a duffle bag which is portered up. I think I've got the wrong end of the stick!! Have been ooking at day packs today - advised to get a 'female' style if poss as would be so much more comfortable and they are!! Not yet decided on which one although I finally decided on a sleeping bag - went for a Rab 900 in the end, a bit pricier than I was originally going to spend but I had a lucky win on the national last saturday (66-1) and won £422.50 for a fiver bet each way - Yay!! If I'm not warm enough in that then there's no hope for me! I am hoping to trek up Kilimanjaro if all goes well with MP so it will be good for that trip too. I have to say, this whole kit thing is a challenge in itself; which brand, which type etc! My next challenge is some sort of jacket - wish me luck haha !!
Hey Susan, Mim and James - great to 'meet' you :)
Susan, I'm still having problems deciding on a back pack and coat, it will be over by the time I get my act together! You've made a really good point Susan, hadn't thought about luggage going awol - but will defo be wearing the essential items like boots etc on the way out.
I haven't been walking as far in the past couple of weeks, although I've been in the gym - work etc getting in the way and I celebrated my birthday yesterday by doing a tandem skydive - overwhelmingly fantastic!!! I now have to re group, get my head out of the clouds (literally) and think about July. M&J - have you done anything like this before? X
